Lamoille Canyon, June 20, 2017

Our original plan was to ski a dusk patrol mission on June 19th with our friend Curtis. However, when we made it to road's end we were met by a downpour. We would set out again the next morning.

That evening's sunset shows why this range is called the Ruby Mountains.

Our run provided us with around 1,000 feet of vertical pleasure. Lamoille Canyon is definitely on the to-do again list.
